CAN I GET A WITNESS: After 28 years as a couple, Mark Badgley and James Mischka made their union official by tying the knot Friday at City Hall. While the designers have made their mark with red-carpet gowns for VIPs like Sharon Stone, Oprah Winfrey, Teri Hatcher and Melissa Etheridge, they were considerably more understated about celebrating their own big day. Badgley’s twin sister O’Hara was the sole witness when they sealed the deal at the City Clerk’s office.
Her brother met Mischka at Parsons School of Design and the design duo launched their Badgley Mischka label in 1988 and added bridal in 1993. Their plan for Friday night was to host a private dinner with 22 of their nearest and dearest friends at the SoHo bistro Raoul’s. There was no word on the dress code at press time but the wedding cake was sure to be decked out, thanks to Sylvia Weinstock.

Fashion's unlikeliest couple: Designer Giles Deacon said to be dating fearsome Game of Thrones star, Gwendoline Christie
Christie, 33, plays warrior Brienne of Tarth in the hit HBO series
She and Deacon, 43, are believed to have been dating since the New Year
She spends her working day swinging a sword around and terrifying every man in the vicinity. He designs dresses.
But that hasn't stopped Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie and designer Giles Deacon from becoming an unlikely twosome.
The pair are believed to have met on New Year's Eve and have since enjoyed several dates, according to Grazia Daily, including a foray to the Elle Style Awards, where the couple larked around with Deacon's designer friends, Henry Holland and Jonathan Saunders.
Following stints as a professional gymnast and artists' model, 6ft Christie shot to fame when she took on the role of Brienne of Tarth in HBO's Game of Thrones.
married? i think you might be confusing giles with christopher bailey. bailey is the one that just married.
but no,deacon has actually dated some very prominent women. he's dated musician beth orton and model sophie dahl as well. and btw,if he has dated men,so what? not everybody has to fall under a particular category.
no, I'm just embarrassed that I made such a judgement myself, nothing to do with the thought of being gay or straight. don't take it too serious. I know Katie's been a big support for Giles but don't know they dated each other before, interesting.
